Space Nuts Episode 254 with Professor Fred Watson & Andrew Dunkley
●Heavy Metals discovered in vapor trails of comets
●Where we live…in the scheme of things it’s pretty ordinary and boring…and we like it like that.
●Questions – from Tim in Lismore (NSW, Australia) who asks what would happen if he dipped his toe into a black hole? And Paul in Toowoomba (Queensland, Australia) with questions about magnetism and tractor beams. Fred has answers for both.
